Dawson Community College Music Department will present the nineteenth annual production of the Madrigal Dinner on December 3 and 4 at the Toepke Center on the DCC campus. The castle doors will open each evening at 5:30 p.m., with feasting and festivities commencing at 6. Transformed into a Renaissance castle, the Toepke Center becomes the backdrop to a feast for eyes and ears fit for a king. Traditional and contemporary music await castle guests as vocal and instrumental performers, jesters, jugglers, and dancers provide the Lord of the Manner and his court an evening of enjoyment. Time honored processions featuring Wassail, Boar’s Head, and Flaming Pudding transport the audience through the evening. Guided by the Jester and Merton, Lord of Misrule, each guest will play a role in their given kingdom. Those wishing to dress in costume are invited to do so.
Glendive students, as well as those from Forsyth, Baker, Glasgow, Fairview, Wolf Point, Dillon, Havre, Brockton, Miles City, Colstrip, Brockway, Red Lodge, Custer, Wyoming, North Dakota, Florida, and Colorado have been preparing throughout fall semester for the production. Staff, faculty, and alumni will also contribute to the production of the evening, making the Madrigal Dinner a true community event. Tickets are $22.50 and may be purchased by calling DCC at 377.9415. For more information, contact Lisa Shields at 406.377.9456 or online.
Proceeds from this event support DCC music department scholarships and activities.
